Giving Tuesday, Giving Jokers
We support Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation
Today is Giving Tuesday where we all try to give a little more. Joker Greeting is offering that every dollar you save today will be given to Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation in Tibet; a small charity we have known for 11 years. Read below for details.
11 years ago a friend of mine and I visited Nepal for charity and we gave 30 days or our time and money to help. We met another man named Brian McClatchy, a teacher at the time, who was helping children in Tibet with his wife. We have stayed in contact and he has done some amazing work like building a safe dormitory for them to have working bathrooms and living standards. 97% of these dollars go to the children while the 3% loss is due to processing fees.
